Giving Tuesday Campaign - Support the Ripon Public Library

December 2020

Dear Library Friend,

Thank you for supporting the Ripon Public Library during this unique time.  Whether using the library, volunteering, or making a financial contribution, you have enabled it to make a significant difference in the community.  Because I know you value the Library and the services it provides to our community, if you are able, please consider a year-end gift to the Library.

The Library is here to serve you during the pandemic.  The Library is open and, in addition to providing its regular slate of services, staff will continue to provide curbside service plus meeting rooms are now available for small social gatherings.  For those who prefer to stay home, free digital audio and print books are available via OverDrive for most devices and computers.  For more information about any of the Library’s services, please contact staff at 920-748-6160.

The focus of the 2019 Giving Tuesday campaign was to raise funds for the redesign and renovation of the Children’s Department, and approximately $25,000 has been donated to date.  The Library is in the process of selecting an architect to develop a design plan to meet the needs of today and tomorrow.  Fundraising for the project will be an ongoing endeavor, with contributions from the 2020 Giving Tuesday campaign also directed to this incredibly meaningful venture.

Please join us in celebrating the power of libraries by visiting the library and using its resources or by making your gift today. All donations are tax deductible to the full extent of the law and a donation form may be found on the library's website or you may donate directly to the Ripon Public Library Fund at the Oshkosh Area Community Foundation. Any contribution, no matter how small, is appreciated. We need your continued support in order to maintain an excellent library and ensure that it remains an anchor to our community for many years to come.

Thank you for your generosity and your support.

Best regards,

Andrew Prellwitz, Library Board President
